SWIM MEETS 

  • You are responsible for finding your own hotels, occasionally we do have group rates at certain swim meets, an e-mail will be sent letting you know beforehand. 

  •  

  • Swim meets- we as coaches take exceptional pride in seeing our swimmers wearing our team's gear. All established and successful teams make team attire mandatory during the swim meets. We observe those teams with envy. Seeing our swimmers come to meets without team attire really disappoints us coaches. There is no reason to show up at a swim meet with Oregon Duck gear or your high school team gear, you should be wearing your Superior Aquatic team gear PROUDLY! All swimmers have received one free team shirt and a Superior Aquatic swim cap. If your swimmer has not received one, please let Coach Alexandra know. Superior Athletic Club sells our team shirts in the Pro Shop at the front desk of the main club. Our Superior Aquatic team swim outlet store is open year-round and has MANY different shirts and more you can customize, and this is also great for parents and grandparents to support our team and rock Superior Aquatics gear! https://www.swimoutlet.com/collections/superioraquatics 

  • You need to be on time to meet warmups. E-mails are sent out before swim meets and you need to be at the pool, in your swimsuit ready to swim at the time that is mentioned. 

  •  

  • Swim Cap- You will be given one latex team cap that your swimmer is required to wear during meets. Additional caps are $5.00. Periodically, we arrange to have personalized caps made, or offer both latex and silicone caps for purchase. 

  •  

  • Swimsuit- Superior Aquatics does not require the purchase of a specific team suit. Practice suits should be comfortable and non-restricting. Competition suits- Swimmers under the age of 12 may not wear "tech suits" (tech suits or technical suits are a flat or taped seam) as of September 1st, 2020, per USA Swimming's sanctioned meet rule. USA Swimming also requires no suits with zippers or ties.

  •  

  • Recommendations from the team: suit should be tight fitting, so as not to allow drag. Polyester suits resist stretching and wear longer than nylon.  

  •  

  • Goggles- Bring at least two pairs of goggles. There are many styles, so try a few brands and shapes, and keep them just for competition. 

  •  

  • 2-3 Towels- When one gets soggy your swimmer will want another one. Another great idea is a robe or swim parka to wrap up in after events. Swim parkas are also a great investment for your swimmer.  

  •  

  • Snacks and/or concession stand money- Your swimmer will get HUNGRY, and most likely so will you. Take "real food" like sandwiches or salads, and a variety of snacks. Lots of drinks too! 

  •  

  • Seating- Often you'll be waiting in a cafeteria or gym, and often seating is hard to find. Bringing a blanket for the floor, or a folding chair is a great idea so you and your swimmer will have somewhere to sit. If it is an outdoor meet, you might consider bringing a shelter or umbrella to give yourself some shade! 

  •  

  • Entertainment- There can be a lot of downtime between events so you should bring something along to keep you entertained. Books, tablets, magazines, coloring books......whatever your favorite boredom buster is! 

  •  

  • A Sharpie- As crazy as it sounds this is a must have! When your child is told their events they use it to write them on their hand/arm/leg so they can remember what their event/heat/lane they are swimming in. You obviously don't want it to wash off, so it has to be permanent. Black works best, as the colored seems to run and come off easier! 

  •  

  • Sit together as a team- not spread out all around the pool. This is also a great way to get to know other swimmers and parents and makes it easier for the coaches to find you. 

  •  

  • Please check in before and after your events- coaches need to talk about what you need to focus on during the race, and how you swam your race. 

  •  

  • We know some of our swimmers who have friends on other teams- when we are at swim meets, please cheer for your Superior teammates!  

  •  

  • If a coach or parent from another team approaches you (swimmer or parent) for recruiting purposes, please tell your parents and the coach since this is against the USA Swimming’s Code of Conduct rules and regulations of recruitment.
